Food shortages afflict many African peoples. This accounts for the
high percentage of infant and child mortality. One small effort
to alleviate this problem is Operation Chiwamba, which chose the
city of Chiwamba, Malawi, a small country in southeastern Africa,
as the destination for funds raised in Europe. Young people
of the Regnum Christi Movement coordinate this program which supports
St. Mary´s Rehabilitation Center operated by the Missionaries of Mary
the Mediatrix in Chiwamba.
